Valeria Monis

Whilst researching ceramics and Russian prison tattoos I came across this fantastic collection by an artist called Valeria Monis. She has hand crafted a collection of ‘criminal ceramics’ and they are beautiful, combining russian prison tattoos with traditional Russian blue porcelain, connecting two strands of Russian art history.

Each of the plates are handmade,¬†illustrated by hand with drawings from the Russian prisons. The white of the plates combines beautifully with the blue ink used for the designs, I wouldn’t even want to eat my dinner off these plates!
